Spine Care

Reduced neck and back pain, improved long-term function.

Neck & back pain affects millions of Americans every year and is the second most common reason to visit a primary care physician.

Approximately 8 out of 10 individuals will experience neck and/or back pain at some point in their lives, and for some it may be a recurring ailment. A strained muscle, herniated disk, or pinched nerve can indeed result in severe, debilitating pain, making it a formidable task to get through the day much less do the things we love.

What causes neck and back pain?

While the etiology of neck and low-back pain varies individually, some common risk factors include:

  • Prolonged sitting & standing
  • Awkward postures
  • Repeated or heavy lifting
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Age
  • Occupation

Make an appointment

I had surgery on the lumbar spine in September 2015, which followed two years of conservative treatments and a lot of pain. Before and after the surgery, I have been to many health care professionals, such as massage therapists, osteopaths, acupuncturists, etc. But a friend recommended Gopal Raghunath and I will go nowhere else now.

Gopal is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and very effective. Before getting into complicated treatment modalities, he worked on the basics, i.e. stretching and conditioning of my muscles and joints. This approach helped me curb and control my back pain.
